English Porter |  5.70% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
A rich, chocolaty English Porter with a clean finish. We use the finest floor-malted Maris Otter malts from England, the same malts used for the best single-malt scotch. A portion of malted rye gives a spicy, slightly dry finish.

Fortunately for me, this was my first step outside of the standard domestic beers. As the bottle says, you're hit with a wonderfully rich flavor of chocolate (which was a bit of a shock to me) that is followed by a creamy body. It is ended with a slight bright of rye which continues to put a smile on my face with every sip. I hope to edit this as my palate evolves so that I may do this wonderful find in a sea of selections the justice I am sure it deserves. I can say that I am so impressed that a weekend sabbatical to the brewery in Nashville has been scheduled!
